Fajardo GOAT – Codinera
Kung si Philippine Basketball Asociation legend Jerry Codiñera ang tatanungin, si San Miguel Beer star June Mar Fajardo na ang kanyang PBA ‘greatest of all time’ o GOAT.
Isiniwalat ito Miyerkoles ng five-time champion at 18-year pro league veteran kay Abante Sportalakan host Sarah Jireh Asido.
“I can say talaga si June Mar Fajardo (ang GOAT) kasi if you’re going to based it — if you’re basing it sa awards, of course he got six MVP so no contest na talaga dun, siya talaga ‘di ba,” punto ng 54-anyos, 6-5 na center/forward. “Pero kung achievements way back, debatable ‘yun eh, pagdidibatihan pa ‘yan eh. So sa akin talaga is si June Mar.”
At kahit na hindi kinalimutan sina legends Allan Caidic, Samboy Lim, Bogs Adornado, Robert Jaworski, Ramon Fernandez at Atoy Co, matimbang parin para sa 11-time PBA All-Star at veteran basketball coach si Fajardo.
“Outstanding si June Mar. Six MVPs, eight championships and more to come,” diin pa ng produkto ng UE Red Warriors at kilalang Defense Minister sa Beermen 6-10 center. “Dominating siya eh, dominating talaga.” (Janiel Abby Toralba)
